Both the front and rear diffs have open carriers on most stock Sporties. Some of the rear axles came with clutch LSDs. But I think most were special order or came with an upper-end package. That said, the open carriers only transfer power to one wheel on the axle. So I think the stock configuration is 4 wheel drive with 2 wheels pushin'. But I could be wrong... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/baby.gif" alt="" />
